colin powell to the side in favor of people like todd akin, richard newshour dock christine o'donnell, sharon angle. and those decisions to run people like senator lugar out of the united states senate, those decisions to go for christine o'donnell instead of mike castle! a guy who was once governor of delaware to go for sharon ang gel when harry reid was dead man walking politically in nevada, to make one bad choice after another is guaranteed that still a senate majority leader. the republican party is either going to grow up and be responsible and follow william f. buckley's advice that you will elect the most electable conservative or they're going to go the way of the whigs. >> rose: you said a republican will continue the dreadful collapse unless they adopt william f. buckley's view that conservatism is expressed in pure idealism takes into account reality. michael, let me go back to the people on the cover of "time" magazine. clearly what happened in newtown is the driving force and it is a country thinking about the future of its children but it does have allies with resources
's not forget the tea party aligned folks such as christine o'donnell, ken buck, plus todd akin who i guess is a tea party candidate but was in spirit only. they all lost senate elections that should have been slam dunks for the republicans. the gop needs to be careful. because they want to keep that as part of their constituency. they just don't want them running the show, i guess is what i'm trying to say. >> right. and if you put together all of those candidates that you just mentioned and these were all safe seats for the republicans in the senate. had they won those seats, they would be in charge today. they need it to harness the energy from the far right but not be taken over by it. i think a lot of sensible voices in the party are saying we've got a problem here. if we want to win again, we've got to do something about it. yet they've structured the system this way so that all of their members are just terrified of losing in a primary far more than they are of defying the will of the american electorate. the problem is going to be here for a long tile. but you're seeing the chris ch
or sharon ankle or christine o'donnell. republican extremism in the republican process has allowed harry reid to remain majority leader of the u.s. senate. forget about being the conservative party or moderate party as nicolle wallace says, we've got to quit being the stupid party and do what william f. buckley told us to do 30, 40 years ago, that is play to win. you know, find the middle of the electorate and be conservative, but understand what the reality is in the middle of that electorate. and find the most conservative candidate that can win. we haven't done that for a very long time, and i can tell you this, we need to start doing this again right now. another great example, chuck hagel, republicans are against him, a republican. you look at the latest polls that have come out on hagel, americans support him by a 2 to 1 margin. with polls that just came out. it's one more example of how this party is taking such a narrow extreme view on so many issues that we can't see the forest for the trees. we can't make the arguments we need to make, which is that we need to balance the budge
, richard murdoch, christine o'donnell and sharon eng gl, voted for what they saw as ideological purity instead of primary candidates who could win in november. >> if you look at the writings of william f. buckley, what did buckley say? vote for the conservative. the most conservative candidate that has a chance of winning. ba because extremists have taken over the party process in some states, you've had people like murdoch, akin, sharon angle, christine o'donnell. if they listened to william f. buckley they'd control the senate. >> don't you think he would be endorsing ting chuck hagel righ? here is a republican -- >> yes. at the end of his life, william f. buckley said near conservatives were not actually conservatives. their beliefs had no basis in reality. >> this is a great example for the republican party to rally around a moderate republican who will help us redefine foreign policy and get away from the neo cons who are never held accountable for all the mistakes around the war in iraq and afghanistan. neve never. >> you know, harold buckley, william f. buckley asked about the i
